Whenever an actor decides to use "the method" approach to a role, it usually ends up making headlines. The process of an actor really getting their head inside a character has made for some jaw-dropping performances, and some shocking behind-the-scenes tales. Here are just a few times method actors have taken things too far for a part…

This went from Daniel Day Lewis to Ashton Kutcher in just one move? I can't even imagine the two on the same list. . . I was waiting for Dustin Hoffman or Brando but we went straight out of Daniel Day Lewis. . . to Ashton Kutcher?
As I'm fully conversant in both Imperial and metric measurements, I much prefer pounds, feet and inches. It's much easier to work with. Ask any Canadian school child (only taught metric) how tall they are and their weight and they will ALWAYS reply in feet, ins and pounds. They might say 5' tall and 113 lbs. Not 152.4 cm and 51.36 kg. Fuel economy is much easier to understand also. 33 miles per gallon is self explanatory. 7.13liters/100k? wtf is that in comparison
It takes alot of dedication, but if you were truly a good actor you wouldent need to get inside the role months ahead of time... u could simply act like you have... ya know, like if i said i need a pirate and someone just started convincing me they are a pirate, that's a much better actor then someone who says i have to live on an island for a month before i can act like a pirate
i wish i could say method acting is the reason i've flucuated between 235lbs competing in mens physic comps to my lowest of 152lbs instead of meth/heroin addiction in the past decade, at 6'4". addiction is one of some of bitch. but i guess this extreme method of prepping for a role is an addiction in itself, obviously. what people will do for money or a grammy, etc... i largely blame hollywood corruption for it. they already know who would be willing to go this far to make their movie outstanding and I've never been in that position obviously, nor am i least bit materialist after having been through living on the streets before I was 20 so even though I'm still young, i have a much different view on it. as long as I have a roof over my head, food/water, and a loving family. Money (power/control)is used as a very evil manipulation tool that works, clearly. just about everyone in the show bizz falls for it and cross lines they swore they would never cross but money talks.
i know i'm kind of going off on a tangent but these past couple years have really revealed a lot IMO. Tim Berg's (avicii's passing; RIP<3) i think had a large part of the music industry pushing him to the limit. i'm well aware he had drug/alch abuse problems long before his death but i really think he'd still be here with us today if it weren't for the greedy, manipulative, deceiving industry pushing to his death prematurely. feeel free to disagree with anything. I'd love a debate.
If you haven't realized this already- not longer the 27 Club. The >21 Club is the norm now and has been for a few years at least now and it's so fucked up. AND lastly, i don't think anyone knows how they would react if they were offered tens and millions of dollars despite crossing their moral boundaries, regardless if you say, "not a chance in hell i'd take that offer because I'm educated how toxic and awful the music/show business is." I don't think anyone can really truthfully answer that.
